Bond Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Melbury 2005
The 2005 Melbury offers lovely aromas of cedar, creme de cassis, licorice, and smoked/roasted herbs as well as good underlying acidity, full-bodied power, and stunning concentration, but also unmistakable elegance and harmony. While these are all big wines, there is an attractive European tannic profile to the 2005 Melbury. Although accessible now, 3-5 years of bottle age will be beneficial, and it should improve for 20-25 years. - Wine Advocate
BOND: A stable of Napa Valley thoroughbreds — ultimately six Cabernet-based wines — assembled under the umbrella of one philosophy, one facility and one mark. Created in partnership with proprietors of select Napa Valley hillside vineyards. BOND is our covenant and shared commitment to produce only the best expression of the land. At BOND, each wine has its own cellar under one roof in which to develop its individual character and singular expression of place.
A nose of ‘texture and terroir’…. Definitely Oakville (I thought it was Phelp's Backus in a blind tasting)… expansive in the mouth, the flavors are driven by the texture and there are drop dead tannins that help this wine last in the mouth.

96 Points - Robert M. Parker, Jr.'s The Wine Advocate (December 2008)The 2005 Vecina is also strutting its stuff. I can't say it showed better than it did last year, but this wine comes close to perfection for my palate. Made in a Graves-like style, it exhibits scents of roasted herbs, espresso, scorched rocks, and liquid minerals seamlessly integrated into a full-bodied, dense wine offering a cascade of black cherries and black currants. Built for the long haul, this powerful 2005 is soft enough to be drunk early, but it will not hit its stride for at least a decade, and should age for three decades thereafter.
